Mindful Eating Article by Andrew Rogan

This article from the Mother Nature Network discusses diets and healthy eating lifestyles, which we have learned a lot about over the past few weeks. Above all, the article states that mindful eating can be adapted to all diets and lifestyle choices, helping people digest their food with more thought and more reflection. With that being said, the author gives 5 tips on how to best begin the habit of mindful eating. Two of the tips the author gave correspond to what AU’s dietician, Jo-Ann Jolly, told us during the molecular gastronomy demonstration—shut off your phone and eat slower. In addition, the author wrote on eating in silence, thinking deeply on the flavors of the food you’re eating, and knowing where the food comes from. It takes concentration and commitment, but the author vows it is possible.
